the ordinary blog
The goal is to read just a little more in 2020 while not sacrificing time with others to do so, continuing to find those pockets in time. Listening to more books through Audible will make this a lot easier as well. There is a lot on my book shelf and wish list and I want this to be a source on inspiration rather than a burden.
With regard to this site the big change is that I am planning to go back to having one main page for all the books in 2020 and use blog posts for the details. It is something I have seen in lots of other book websites and should make the overview of the year have more visual impact.
Talking of overrviews the other big addition will be an Index page where people can at a glance see all the books that appear on the site and provide links to easily get there. The use of blog pages should also make this better too. As there must be nearly 150 books now that i've read since starting this, it is quite a time consuming project but the little feedback i do get from people who view the site say it would be welcome.
Finally I want there to be more of my opinion on the site. I say this every year and find it difficult because I want my more interesting views and opinions but at the same time to keep a respectful and appreciative tone to all the amazing authors who toil mostly alone to keep me entertained. Jasper Fforde ends "Early Riser" with an apology to his readers for not writing a book for a couple of years during his "creative hiatus". I can only imagine the pressure and panic that start to build.
So here's to a fantastic 2020 to all authors and readers alike. Happy New year!
